E5 Apartment block


The Blurb

Located off Lower Clapton Road, the proposal replaces a cluster of 3 former industrial buildings with a four storey mix-use development accommodating both commercial and residential units.
Designed as a tectonic cube, the building is sculpted as a result of the various daylight/outlook constraints of its neighbouring buildings; arranged around a central courtyard. Clad in yellow stock facing bricks with a language of flat panelled zinc clad within the folded inner surfaces of the balconies and window reveals. The top level is also clad in zinc. The two main street-facing corners of the cube is characterised by dramatic double volume balconies and living spaces serving duplex apartments.
